(4) 有的托友本身的听力、语法、词汇的基础就比较弱，缺乏听力的技巧，譬如对signal words所透露的关键信息的把握。
(1) Independent task
我在这里建议大家在做笔记时从以下三个方面进行记录：topic主旨、sub-points or supporting details分论点、signal words or transitions信号词。
Question: Choose a place you go to often that is important to you and explain why it is important. Please include specific details in your explanation.
Sub-point: read, study, rest, appointment
Signal words: firstly, secondly, moreover, the last but not the least
A library is the most important place for me. I usually go to library twice a week. Firstly, I can read a lot of books for free in the library. Secondly, I can study there because it is a quiet place. Moreover, library is also a good place for me to have a rest, because no one bothers you there. The last but not the least, the library provides a wonderful environment for lovers to make an appointment. My parents had such experience!
Bus Service Elimination Planned
The University has decided to discontinue its free bus service for students. The reason given for this decision is that few students ride the buses and the buses are expensive to operate. Currently, the buses run from the center of campus past university buildings and through some of the neighborhoods surrounding the campus. The money saved by eliminating the bus service will be used to expand the overcrowded student parking lots.
The man expresses his opinion of the university’s plan to eliminate the bus service. State his opinion and explain the reasons he gives for holding that opinion.
Obviously the man disagrees with the idea that the school will eliminate the bus service, because he thinks the fee of the car parking is so expensive and it is unreasonable to change the road and eliminate the bus. Also he points that if the school expands the student parking, more and more students will drive to school which will cause a lot of noise and maybe more traffic accidents. As a result, the school should encourage the students to take bus instead of driving to school, which is also bad for the environment of the school.
